Turtle Soup: Finding Amelia

March 20, 2020  12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


We're providing the BEST OF our past Turtle Soups and Learning Forums to bring Black Hills history to you at no cost! Watch "Finding Amelia" below.




Feed your mind and your belly with Turtle Soup, featuring a history program and a bowl of soup. Turtle Soups in March are themed for Women in History Month. 

This week, Corey Christianson presents, "Finding Amelia." 



Born in 1897, Amelia Earhart led an incredible, record-setting life in a short 40 years. She was a pioneer for female pilots, becoming the first woman to receive the Distinguished Flying Cross. But Amelia was much more than a pilot - she was also a clothing designer, an author, and a world-record holder. Her death is one of the world’s greatest mysteries.

Come with us as we explore her motivations, achievements, and unique connection to South Dakota!

This story will be shared by The Journey Museum and Learning Center’s Administration, Curation, and Exhibits Coordinator, Corey Christianson.

As a Coast Guard brat, she has moved 11 times but claims Wisconsin as home. She received her undergraduate degree in history and English from the University of South Dakota. She went on to get her masters degree with an emphasis in museum studies from the University of Oklahoma.

In her off time, Christianson volunteers at the South Dakota Air and Space Museum and helps the Base Historian with his archives. To date, she has spent over 1,129 hours volunteering.

Admission is $12 for adults, $10 for seniors, half-off for members. Call 605-394-6923 to reserve tickets.
